Darth Maul Will Be Resurrected For The Clone Wars!

Despite being as dead as dead can be at the end of The Phantom Menace, the fan fave Sith Lord will return to George Lucas' Star Wars Universe in the animated Clone Wars series..

Remember that awesome trailer for The Phantom Menace? Remember that cool looking new bad guy? Remember the excitement of going to see the movie for the first time only to have him say his 3 lines, spin his double sided light saber and be cut in half by Ewan McGergor? The movie was rife with disappointments but one of the biggest had to be the treatment of Darth Maul, who was played with great ferocity by martial artist Ray Park. Well now as unlikely as a man cut in two coming back to life is (this is Star Wars after all) we will see Mr Maul again.

Here is an excerpt from their report..

“I found it funny in The Phantom Menace when Darth Maul got cut in half,” Clone Wars supervising director Dave Filoni says. “I thought George was definitively saying to the fans, ‘There’s no way this character is coming back. This is not a Boba Fett/Sarlacc Pit situation where, because of fan love, Boba gets out of that thing any number of ways.’ Fast-forward ten-years, and I’m the one to bring Maul back.”


I must admit to being curious to see how they go about this and I was a big fan of the character, all 6 minutes of him. I may just start watching this show.
